Robert Pattinson has picked another post-Twilight project, Hold On To Me. He will star alongside Carey Mulligan and Oscar-winner James Marsh has been tapped to direct.
Deadline first reported the casting, noting that the film is based on a true story where a woman and her boyfriend kidnap the richest man in a town. They decide to bury him in a box, but things don’t go as planned. Pattinson has not been tapped to play the boyfriend. Rather, he will take a supporting role as the woman’s lifelong love who doesn’t participate in the scheme.
Producers include Alexandra Milchan and Indian Paintbrush’s Steven Rales, Mark Roybal and Michael Pruss. Todd Field, who had hoped to direct the film before moving onto another project, will also produce.
Marsh won an Oscar for his 2008 documentary feature Man on a Wire. He recently directed Clive Owen in Shadow Dancer.
The news comes while Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have reconciled, just before the Nov. 16 release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. Stewart even bought a home near his. He also has two other films for 2013 in the pipeline, including The Rover with Guy Pearce and Mission Blacklist.
As for Mulligan, this project will follow the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis and The Great Gatsby.
